By Nana Kirtzkhalia - Trend:

Georgia's ex-President Mikheil Saakashvili will not be put into the international wanted list, according to Georgian Deputy Prosecutor General, Irakli Shotadze.

"Mikheil Saakashvili did not fulfil his civic duty and refused to come to the Georgian prosecutor's office to give testimony as a witness. But the investigation process is going on and the investigation will attempt to obtain evidence in certain cases without the ex-president's help," he said on April 3.

Saakashvili was summoned to Georgian Prosecutor General's Office to be questioned on March 27 as a witness in 10 cases.

However, Saakashvili currently being abroad, refused to come for questioning. Later, he was offered to give testimony via Skype.

The ex-president said he is ready to testify on all cases via Skype if necessary.

He stressed that he is ready to testify during the court proceedings remotely, if this is required by the judge supervising the case.
